The Anādi Issue (10/26/10)
It seems the ____ Mahārāja is coming out strong with his ‘anādi-karma’ issue and concludes that there is no realm called taṭastha where the jīva begins his journey. He concludes that Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura made this idea up as a ‘preaching strategy’.
Devotees have asked me to write something on this topic, but like the ‘parrot of Rādhā’ issue, i prefer to wait for a few months to one year before writing on the topic. I would like to see if the the Nārāyaṇīs say anything on this, etc.
In the end, I will indeed write a KṛṣṇaTalk on the topic and I will draw from Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja as my faith dictates. I do not agree with _____ Swami’s conclusion, as you know.
So in the meantime whatever information you can gather on the topic, including categorizing ___ Swami’s arguments 1,2,3 etc, will come in handy when the time comes.
It would be interesting to see what other Gauḍīyas such as S_____ Mahārāja or B___ Mahārāja have to say about ___ Swami’s conclusion, but they will probably not get involved.
Anyway, as time permits you can gather some information on the topic.
